One of the newest character dining experiences at Walt Disney World is the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno Restaurtant. This restaurant is located on Disney’s BoardWalk – part of Disney’s BoardWalk Resort and only a short walk from Epcot and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Our kids were especially excited for this breakfast because the featured characters are from two of our favorite Disney films… The Little Mermaid and Tangled. Also fun is that Prince Eric and Flynn Rider were going to be there! There aren’t a ton of other opportunities to see the royal couples in the parks.
Trattoria al Forno is a lovely Italian restaurant in the evenings (no characters), and the Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast offers traditional morning fare along with some heartier, Italian-inspired brunch entrees.
Here is the breakfast menu…
And the kids’ menu…
When you arrive you will notice little cards on the table with the characters’ signatures… so if you forgot your autograph book, you still have a nice souvenir.
Also on the table is a frying pan (Remember the frying pan from Tangled? We know Flynn Rider does!) filled with scrumptious, fresh-baked pastries.
These starters are so beautifully themed for this breakfast. No standard cinnamon roll here! (Not that there is anything wrong with a Disney cinnamon roll!) The muffins are tinted in “Ariel colors”. The red of her hair, green fin, purple top.
This puff pastry sun cookie looks just like the sun Rapunzel painted in her tower.
This “oyster” treat is filled with raspberry jelly and is decorated with a beautiful pearl (sugar-coated chocolate!)
This chocolate twist is braided – a nod to Rapunzel’s beautiful braid.
To go along with the “Bon Voyage” travel theme of the breakfast, you are also treated to an “Adventure Journal”. It prompts you to write about your travels and favorite things that you have experienced at the Walt Disney World Resort. All four of the theme parks are featured on the map.
The “moms” are on vacation, so we had lovely adult breakfast beverages (these are an extra charge). A peach bellini and a mimosa. So delicious!
We tried not to eat too many baked goods since our meal was arriving soon. One of the “starters” was a Berry, Yogurt and Granola Parfait. This was very good and the small granola bar on top was fantastic. I couldn’t keep this one away from my daughter.
The other starter was a fruit salad… nothing special but it is nice to have some fruit in the morning to start the day off on the right food. The “sword” skewer was a cute touch.
Oh… who do I spy coming into the dining room?
Following soon after is his love, the Little Mermaid herself, Ariel.
Napkin-twirling parade! This is when the kids are called up from their seats to take a walk around the restaurant with the characters.. and twirl their napkins high in the air!
Soon after the parade, the entrees arrived. Here is King Triton’s Shipwreck Al Forno. Complete with a trident keeping it all together (that the server takes away).
This was a huge calzone filled with soppressata (Italian salami), bacon, sausage, and cheeses served with an Italian Sunday Gravy (sauce). This was basically a meat-lovers pizza for breakfast, and I loved it! Definitely a good choice for someone with a big appetite in the morning.
For a more traditional breakfast, the Tower of Pancakes is a great choice. Served with bacon or sausage and a seasonal fruit compote. The powdered sugar Rapunzel sun on the top of the tower is a nice touch too.
For the kids, one option is Mickey Waffles… which, as you can see here… isn’t entirely accurate on the menu. The waffles feature flounder, etc… not the classic Mickey Mouse waffles you see elsewhere on property. This might be a good thing for some, but for children who have their heart set on Mickey, this could be a problem. Ask your server first.
Flounder’s Flapjacks are the kid version of the Tower of Pancakes. The fish-shaped pancake is cute too.
Oh… hello there! It’s Flynn Rider!
If you want to see something special, ask Flynn what he carries in his pouch…
And Rapunzel is on hand to calm down tired, fussy babies…
The Bon Voyage Adventure Breakfast is a great addition to the character meals at Walt Disney World. The food is delicious and uniquely themed. The character interaction is fantastic and it is one of the few places at Disney where you will find the princesses with their princes. We will definitely return!
